The Market Analysis team for January has a lot of data to consolidate thanks to the hustle of the December team. We will continue their hard work by delving in to the economic profile of the country and analysing the market from 4 perspectives: income, location, crop types, and supply and demand. Market Analysis will feed this data to the Field Development Team who will continue to develop a permaculture blueprint tailored to the Cambodian market.
